India can be described as a shopper's paradise with products such as
hand-woven rugs, inlaid marble, semi-precious stone jewelry, silk
fabrics, brassware, etc. India's diversity is expressed though the
creation of master craftspeople. Each state has a unique handicraft to
proudly reflect the inherited and improved skills to near perfection.
Souvenir shops and art & craft emporiums are to be found everywhere.
Consult your guidebook or the local guides and people. Usually the
"pavement markets" do not guarantee the products and they do not accept
credit / debit cards. Genuine products can only be guaranteed at a
government showroom or branded showroom, i.e. Cottage Industries, etc.
Shopping can be one of the ways to interact with a local. For people who
like to bargain, shopping is a true pleasure. For others, fixed priced
stores are a relief. Whatever transaction you prefer, we hope your
purchase that was made in India, will remind you of your trip.
Yes, the guides do take you to shops and showrooms, while you are on
tour. You can say "no" when you don't want to visit the shops or not
interested in shopping with a guide. But when you do visit the store
with the guide, you do not necessarily pay a higher price for a
substandard product. As this is a worldwide phenomenon, we accept it too
with its "blues". What we have done is, selected a few stores both
privately owned & government owned but in both cases Government
recognized) at important destinations.
